Looking for employees online can quickly turn into a nightmare if you don’t know where to look. Your email may be flooded with unqualified applicants. Unless you have a budget to hire a recruitment agency in Singapore it is, however, your only option. Fortunately, it is very easy to look for potential employees online. All you have to do is look for the right candidate.
We divide our list into two categories to make it much easier for you. These are full-time and freelance employees. Each of these categories has different preferred job search platform.
Full time Employees
LinkedIn is not only a business networking site but it is also a great tool for hiring talent. With easy search navigation, you can find a suitable potential applicant online. Plus, you can even see their past job experiences and accomplishments. If interested in the position, all you would need to do next is verify that all the information in their profile is true. Interviewing them in person can also give you a glimpse of how they are in person and how they would act as an employee. It is the perfect alternative to hiring recruitment agencies in Singapore.
Jobstreet is an online job portal that is wildly popular in South East Asia. It is very similar to all the other online job platforms. Every recruitment agency in Singapore’s go-to job portal, Jobstreet will surely bring you in suitable applicants. With numerous checks they require from applicants, it filters out applicants that don’t have enough requirements. The downside, however, is that it costs a lot of money to run job ads in the website and your company will also go through verification checks which could take a while.
JobsDB is also another popular job portal in South East Asia. Another very easy to use platform, they also have quality checks for applicants. This allows you to filter out applicants that aren’t right for the job and, in turn, save you a lot of time weeding out unqualified applicants. The great thing about JobsDB is that, with the same territorial scope as Jobstreet, it offers more cost-effective packages. The numbers might be slightly less than the later but it will still bring you a lot of applicants to choose from.
Freelancer.com is a portal to bring together freelancers and employers making the whole process so much easier. The problem most employers have on freelancers is that they don’t do a good job. This is problematic especially if you have already paid the freelancer. Freelancer.com eliminates this. With a rating system and reviews for the freelancers, you will be sure to find a suitable candidate. Pricing is also set based on their experience so you can choose a freelancer based on their price per project.
Freelancer Zone is a Singapore freelancer job portal. Much like freelancer.com, Freelancer Zone connects freelancers and employers. It is used solely in Singapore making it easier for you if you’d like to meet your freelancer in person.
Most recruitment agencies in Singapore will tell you to avoid looking for applicants in forums. As conversational as it is, you don’t know if the person on the other end is indeed an applicant.
